speaking of which, why is a portrait of me hanging behind a ceremony honoring native americans? again, my nickname was "indian killer," not "indian tickler," not "indian honorer," "indian killer." literally, any other portrait would be less insulting to native americans -- the mascot for the cleveland indians, the lando lakes butter lady, the guy who dressed up like an indian who criedly in the commercial. johnny depp as tonto, anything. but trump is the president so to show my respect for navajo code talkers. i will speak in code. let them crack that one. >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." plus, stephen
11:37 pm
justin timberlake and san juan carmen yulin cruz featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hello! what's up, everybody? thank you, please, sit down, everybody. too kind. ladies and gentlemen, welcome to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert, i am one of the few money still allowed on television because today matt lauer was is let go from nbc's morning show, the "today' show, this morning, today. according to the chairman of nbc news, lauer was fired due to "inappropriate sexual vi
11:38 pm
not to be confused with "appropriate" sexual behavior in the workplace. because that does not exist. ( laughter ) we should have seen that lauer had a strange obsession with women. i mean, just look at any of his actual halloween costumes. dolly parton, "baywatch" babe, paris hilton, and lucy from peanuts. good grief. after looking at those photos, i think he could have been fired for sexually harassing himself. but he wasn't, because we have some details, and they are not great. turns out, lauer once gave a colleague a sex toy as a present. it included an explicit note about how he wanted to use it on her. it's bad enough that he gave her a sex toy, but he also gave instructions? he found a way to mansplain sexual harassment! ( laughter ) "you're doing that wrong! let me get in there."
11:39 pm
( laughter ) "this is why you like what i'm doing." ( laughter ) and it doesn't stop there. on another day, he summoned a different female employee to his office and then dropped his pants, showing her his penis. after the employee declined to do anything, visibly shaken, he reprimanded her for not engaging in a sexual act. i'm going to say what that woman honestly could not at the moment "what a dick." ( cheers and applause ) we don't have to blur that, do we? we don't have to blur that. we don't have to blur that. this morning, hoda kotb and savannah guthrie had to announce lauer's departure on the "today" show, which must have been awkward for them, and even more awkward for the fans outside the window. wooo! go hawks! where's matt? why's everybody so sad in there? karen, will you marry me?" karen, look at my
11:40 pm
( laughter ) it was the theme. it was the theme of the morning. while the news about lauer is shocking, there were some hints, like this 2012 interview between katie couric and andy cohen.
11:41 pm
( cheers and applause ) back to trumps tweet: "wow, matt lauer just fired from nbc for 'inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.' but when will the top executives at nbc and comcast be fired for putting out so much fake news." by "fake news" do you mean, "more than a dozen women have accused trump of improper conduct or sexual assault." ( cheers and applause ) is that what you mean by "fake news?" listen up! you don't get to comment! that is the pot calling the kettle at 3:00 a.m. and asking what she's wearing. plus, remember the whole billy bush bus thing? turns out, in private, trump's told multiple people that it may not have been him on the tape
11:42 pm
and "we don't think that was my voice." quick tip: if you're going to say something that's already crazy, don't refer to yourself as "we." "all the voices in our head tell us that's not our voice." what's that? yeah, they agree with me. ( cheers and applause ) what? quiet. they're so loud. they're so-- they repeat themselves, but, lord, they're loud." but you know what, let's take him at his word. he's the president of the united states. maybe it wasn't him
11:43 pm
either. >> i said it. i was wrong, and i apologize. >> stephen: admitting he was wrong and apologized in the same sentence. the only way it could have been more un-trump is if he said it while eating a vegetable. ( laughter ) not an onion ring. meanwhile, there's amazing news out of a different crumbling empire. because we just learned that prince harry got engaged! i'm aplutter. and who's the lucky bride-to-be, some third cousin from luxembourg with a prominent jaw? no, turns out it's actress meghan markle, known for her 2011 breakthrough role as ambitious paralegal rachel zane in the hit tv series "suits," but will be officially leaving after season seven, following her engagement news. see a couple of things from that. one, there's apparently a show called "suits"? i saw the ads, but i assumed usa network just got bought by mens wearhouse.
11:44 pm
and, two, it's been on for seven years! and meghan markle is a biracial, divorced american, which is great news for the gene pool of the royal family. they are a little inbred. most of them have to be put down with canine hip dysplasia. no it's sad. it's very sad. i agree. it's extremely sad. they're partly rotwieller. but, england, a word of warning: we had a cool biracial leader for a while, too. and i can tell you, you need to savor it because the next princess... is gonna suck. ( laughter ) ( applause ) suuuck. suck. here are the wedding details. in may, prince harry and meghan markle will marry at st. george's chapel, windsor castle. now traditionally it's at westminster abbey, but it was booked for a harryot
11:45 pm
we've got a great show for you tonight. justin timberlake is here. but when we return, i ponder life's biggest questions with life's biggest star. stick around. with advil, you'll ask what bad knee? what throbbing head? advil makes pain a distant memory nothing works faster stronger or longer what pain? advil.

generation. you have to understand, generation is not that people have power. because all the power in the island gets generate from the southern part. and then it just gets sent around through mountains. >> stephen: so what percentage doesn't have power right now? >> well, about 50% of the population still doesn't have power. and the ones that do have, it's very unstable. we have had two blackouts in the past three weeks, total blackout on the entire island, which is 100 miles long by 30 miles wide. you could be operating in an operating room and all of a sudden, you end up with a light and your cell as a phone. our children are going to school only four hours a day because there's not electricity. and a lot of people, especially the elderly that live in buildings, i say they've become human cages because they cannot have the water pumped up. in the middle of -- >> stephen: is there fresh water? >> well, about 9
12:30 am
but we're still under a health advisory, so you either have to filter the water or you have to boil the water, but, of course, you can't boil the water because you don't have any electricity. so it's-- it's a touch-and-go situation still. and this new "tax" reform is not going to help us, either, because it puts a 20% excise tax on all of the imports that come from puerto rico into the united states. >> stephen: but, wait, so there's a 20%-- >> 20% increase income tax from all of the imports that will come from puerto rico into the united states. >> stephen: but puerto rico is the united states. >> well, you know, we are a territory of the united states. >> stephen: but you're citizens? >> yes, sir, since 1917. and i mean, maybe this is not the place to say it, but president trump has not been up to the standards that this country deserves.
